Guillermo Barros Schelotto's men have lost just three league games this season, with Boca's title moving them a step closer to River Plate's record of 36.

Boca have been led by Dario Benedetto (18 league goals, three assists) and 21-year-old Argentinian Cristian Pavon (nine goals, seven assists).

Carlos Tevez had netted five goals before his lucrative move to Shanghai Shenhua in December.

Fernando Belluschi scored a 56th-minute winner for San Lorenzo in their victory over Banfield.

Boca (59 points) have two games to play, as do third-placed River (52), while Banfield (54) and San Lorenzo (52) have one each.
